assessment -- martin luther king, jr. [applause] so the president will clearly be in the foreground, but dr. king looms large as the backdrop. now, word comes from the white house that they will use his bible for this historic and iconic celebration, so we will talk tonight about how we honor the legacy of dr. king by focusing more attention on the issue that he gave his life for -- the poor. king once said we have to civilize ourselves by the immediate abolition of poverty. obviously, we are not quite there yet, but we of tonight's conversation will aid us and of that as in trying to make sure that we look out for the least among us. i am pleased tonight to be joined by an all-star panel. i want to introduce them one by one and jumped right into the conversation. i want to start by thanking c- span for carrying this program live around the world tonight. [applause] thank you, c-span. as the conversation gets under way, we will tell you more about what you can do at home or wherever you might be watching tonight to join in the conversation, but for now, let me introduce the novice panel of
this with grace and dignity, like dr. martin luther king jr.. he said the most persistent question is -- what are you doing for others? it is a good word for all of us. it should bring in our ears for his birthday weekend. regardless of our differences, we have the same dreams for a better life for our children and grand children. i hope they can go up in the freedom that has uniquely been the united states of america. the united states of america. >> i, barack obama, do solemnly swear -- >> this weekend, president obama begins his second term, sunday, the official swearing-in ceremony at the white house before noon eastern. coverage include your phone calls and a look at the 2009 inaugural address and then the public ceremony with the swearing in at noon eastern and other festivities, including the luncheon and the afternoon parade. coverage begins at 7:00 a.m. eastern on c-span radio and c- span.org. join the conversation on facebook.com/c-span. >> new features including video feeds from our c-span crew, on demand of the major events, individual -- visual blog page of behind-the-scenes phot
with a conversation about dr. martin luther king jr. who preached at the national cathedral four days before he died. and you talked about how he was really giving a wake-up call to the religious to sort of spread the word. how does that story relate to modern times and to what president obama is going to have to do in your perspective, in the next four years. >> well i used it as, with the national cathedral, we're being very supportive of the president's agenda on gun control. and i actually used that as an occasion to talk about dr. king's appearance in that pulpit. about the nonviolence or nonexistence and we had to solve the problem of war and bloodshed. i used it this morning as a rallying cry to ask people in our following to really, get up behind the president. i do think at the time, dr. king was saying that the faith community has to really wake up and not sleep through a revolution, which was his point in 1968. and i think for us in 2013, the issue is how can the faith community be a real voice in public policy and an appropriate way. and i think that is where the conversation at least fo
our schools are setting up academies. dart -- dr. martin luther king academy of leadership and enterprise. or they will name them for langston hughes, frederick douglass. -- frederick douglass. i do not think a lot people should let the name the schools. [laughter] [applause] they should name it for people they do not like. [laughter] here are a few points. i will be unfashionable tonight. everyone in washington seems to think the way to solve the problems in our schools is to not give them another cent, another penny, to improve and make the schools look like places that are inviting and respect the value of children. aesthetics count. do not do that, but beat up on their teachers. that is the trend today. [applause] attack the unions. i heard about the teachers union from teachers in l.a. last fall. i flew to chicago to stand with them the day they went on strike. they were right to go on strike. [applause] i will tell you something. i am in schools all the time. when i was a young teacher, i remember this. schools are overwhelmingly -- the teachers are women. you go to a
forward to most. where they're joining with americans from all over the country to do what dr. king did best. to serve the american people. to move this country forward in a day of service. >> this is different in that this time because it's the 20th constitutional day of swearing in the president comes on a sunday, it's happened before. it is going to be the official swearing in inside the white house on sunday. then again the reenactment, the parade, the speech, and all of that. looking at the weekend as a whole, what is the president's overarching message going to be going forward? >> it will be something familiar to the american people. this is a time for us to come together and reflect on the american people and the grit and determination of the american people. the theme is our people, our future, and what that means is this country only moves forward because of its people. the grit and determination of its people. >> i'm incredibly proud of, but also an agenda, an agenda of moving the middle class forward, of taking some of these big steps that we need to take as a country, like
celebrate the life of dr. martin luther king, jr.. my understanding there is statue of him just above and i wonder how that will play into matters today? >> that's right. president obama made reference in recent days feeling connection to dr. king 50 years ago. also to president lincoln, 150 years ago, and so, as part of the inaugurations, we've seen him use bibles from dr. king and also from president lincoln. there is a statue. there is a statue of dr. king in the capitol rotunda of dr. king. so, this martin luther king holiday, obviously takes on extra significance here in the rotunda. we'll watch obviously to see what the president may do throughout the course of his time here in the rotunda. shepard: mike, it was interesting to hear the matters the president brought up, came up throughout this day. we heard, a lot about climate change, the tragedy of newtown came up repeatedly, which clearly, news from the future i believe. from an agenda at least, from the president himself. those were two highlights along with ending the war and bringing the peace and coming together. a lot right the
, bobby kennedy was her -- assassinated two days before i walked across the stage for graduation. dr. king, the one who got week engaged in politics, was assassinated earlier that year. even assassination attempt at a george wallace. it is no wonder things held together quite frankly. well, the congress passed what was then called the gun control act. among other things it said that felons, fugitives, drug users, those who have been adjudicated and it is not a politically correct phrase, but it is in the law, those that are mentally affected could not own a gun. 1994 as a world change in country changed, along with the thing i am proud is for having written and passed about. we added a new category of people who were prohibited from purchasing a gun. based on facts, not on fiction. that is those who had a restraining order issued against them in a domestic violence incident. that was a fight to get that added. then, two years later we expanded the list again to include anyone convicted of a misdemeanor violent crime, that they were the most likely people to do something. time and experienc

-- the conversation could not be more timely. i sell the time, quoting dr. king, that budgets are moral documents. you can say what you say, but you are what you are. we know who you are when you put your budget on the table. we can see what your budget priorities are. could not be more timely. we are days away -- it will be a big party on monday, but after monday as we move toward the debt ceiling conversations and the spending cuts get placed on the table, the poor are likely to take it on the chin. that is why we are here with in washington tonight having this conversation. our hashtag is #povertymustend. our website is afuturewithoutpoverty.com. you'll find a letter on that website -- you can electronically sign it asking the president to give a major public policy address on poverty sooner than later, and second to convene a white house conference on the eradication of poverty to bring experts to get into crafting national plan to cut poverty in half and eradicate it in the richest nation in the world. it is not a skill problem, it is via upawe have the will to the poverty a priority with in this
saved the union and had to fight a war, but 100 years later, it was dr. martin luther king, who had to fight another war, a war of ideas and a war of values, look how we have progressed just from the 50 years of martin luther king. i became secretary of state. i became a chairman. as a kid in the south bronx section, unthinkable. and barack obama became president of the united states. >> you had stinging things to say about the republican party. an identity problem, you said. and that there are some people who seem to have a theme of intolerance. >> that's a broader definition of what i meant by intolerance. i think intolerance is when you try to keep people from voting. the republican party ought to be out there, not by restricting voting by requiring i.d., but wanting everybody to vote. you need new messages. new policies. the country is becoming more minority. >> have you heard a lot from that? a lot of people pushing back on you? >> most of the people i've heard from in the last week or so have been very, very supportive. but there are those who consider this the worst thing ima

figures i admire probably more than anybody in american history is dr. king and president lincoln. for me to have the opportunity to use the bible they used on the 105th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the march on washington is fitting. their actions and the movement they represent are the only reason that it is possible for me to be inaugurated. it is also a reminder for me that this country has gone through tough times before but we always come out on the other side. we're constantly perfecting our union and making it more fair. we want everybody to have a fair shot in this country. if you work hard, you can make it. regardless of where you come from or what you look like. it is probably the most important thing to keep in mind when you are president of the united states. i will uphold my oath of office at the same time letting me remind people of the sacrifices of the past. from the presidential inaugural committee host: first lady michelle obama just turned 49 last week. she will have a big role during the next couple of days. here is take twe
of ms. evers representing the legacy of dr. king. the cuban american poet representing that particular aspect of the diversity, if you will, that -- and how this president got re-elected all here, all having their place on the platform. the other thing i have to say, too, you know, we are reminded that the inauguration day celebration is basically a three-part play. this is ending. the president will be inside the capitol for about an hour. we will move on, of course, to the parade this afternoon and tonight those two inaugural balls, if you will. but, again, having inauguration day, too, on the martin luther king holiday, amazing symmetry for us long-time washingtonians who get to work heerl during the week. >> for only the second time has the inauguration taken place on a king day holiday. back in bill clinton's second inaugural was the second time. eamon jabbers has been out there. the first thing i noticed how many sort of multi-generational groups there were and how many african-americans were coming to washington bringing either their parents or their grandparents to see this eve
. >> the reverend dr. martin luther king, jr., this of course being martin luther king, jr. day, the only the second time in history the presidential inauguration has fallen on mld day. first was the of inauguration of president bill clinton. and this is an important day for the obamas and so many who have come to witness the event here in washington. >> . >> bret: what a moment that is. what a moment to use the mlk bible among-- and the lincoln bible as well for the swearing in and this will be the 50th anniversary this year of the march on washington, you know, and the "i have a dream" speech and now we have our first black president and that's one thing americans of all colors felt so proud about four years ago and still do, the progress this country has made, speaking of lincoln and dr. king. >> bret: and he mentioned those moments as he looked down the mall in this speech today, and said, to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to every soul on earth, marking that day as well. and to walk out with the house speaker and the house majority leader who he will have
